grains and pulses sound the way to go to be foolproof. soya mince meals are light, compact, cheap and protein rich. you need water to make them, but if you can't get that you are dead anyway.

my bug out location however will have nothing but tea and vodka! that's all the major food groups covered :-)

take a can of meat - or whatever you are investigating - stick it in the freezer of your refrigerator ... and see what happens.

Nothing beats real testing - right?

Listen pal this isn't Mythbusters, it's 'Equipped to Survive' where denying reality is regarded as a useful survival trait (we aren't allowed to discuss global warming). If you are going to start bringing facts into this...

Seriously often asking the question gets you answers you didn't expect. I didn't know fatty foods and burying a few feet down would be solutions.
Since hikermor and I are only bringing tea and vodka it no longer matters anyway.
You know any dancing girls?

You will need to take temperature change with the test. That is different than freezing something once. So in freezer, then out and back again....

Thatīs a thing which is really great about this forum. The bundled knowledge is amazing. Some members often bring aspects to the discussion I might have forgotten about. I still learn a lot here.

Unfortunately I do not know any. But I can bring a dreadnought and a blues harp to provide a beat they could dance to.

Every survival kit should include a mea culpa, with instructions on when to deploy it.
